    Default Is it possible to launch windows directly into a JAVA based password entry system?

    Hi everyone.
    Im new hear, and relatively... ok, completely... new to JAVA. My question is this: Is it possible to launch windows, specifically 8.1, directly into a java based program which would serve as the password entry screen? That is to say, instead of using the standard windows screen, could a java based alternative be used?

    More specifically, I have the source code used on jurassicsystems.com (check it out, its a Unix system, you know this!). I would absolutely kill to have a tweaked version of this system act as my password entry screen. It is literally something Ive wanted to have done for ages, and this emulation finally means it may be possible. Could anyone help me out with this?

    I would be forever grateful,
    Thank you so, so much.

    It sounds like you're talking about using Java to create a Virtual Machine. The JVM has to be hosted by an underlying OS. I don't think it's a practical approach, though I haven't thought about it much, but you might investigate what it takes to build a Virtual Machine and see if Java could be used to do so. Usually C/C++ are used for this type of thing.
